On the opening night, the documentary “Franca: Chaos and Creation” by Francesco Carrozzini, son of the late Vogue Italia editor in chief Franca Sozzani, will be screened in Milan for the first time. The film premiered in Venice last year as part of the city’s international film festival.

During the closing night, the jury will bestow a prize for each category including best director, best Italian fashion film and best styling, among other credits. The jury includes American GQ editor in chief Jim Nelson, fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø, model Eva Riccobono and Camera
